A Piglet Called Truffle
Publisher: Nosy Crow
Jasmine has inherited a love for animals from her veterinarian mum. So when she discovers a helpless piglet that won't survive the night, she takes it upon herself to make sure it has a chance.
Her secret pet thrives under her care and Jasmine even trains her to become a sniffer pig. When the guinea pigs get loose one dark and stormy night, a certain piglet named Truffle will amaze everyone with her tracking talents - but will she be allowed to stay and live with Jasmine for good?
This short, sweet story of a little girl looking after the runt of the litter is a perfect early reader for young bookworms growing in confidence. With beautiful illustrations from Ellie Snowdon and the warm storytelling that we've come to expect from farm girl Helen Peters, this is a lovely little book that is the start of a welcome new series from the ever-brilliant Nosy Crow.
